Scanning Tickets

 

The scanner devices consists of a Socket barcode reader which wirelessly connects to a standard Apple iPod.  Once the iPod is set up and displaying the scanning website page, you can scan barcodes continuously.  To do so:

  1. Scan a barcode.  By default, the Socket device will beep to indicate it has read a barcode.
  2. The iPod will receive this information and communicate to the Pleasant Tickets server.
  3. The server will return a code indicating either success, or failure (along with a reason for the scan failure).
  4. The iPod will make a noise indicating either success or failure, and the screen will be updated with the ticket information.
